Question: three charges are at the corners of an isosceles triangle...
Three charges are at the corners of an isosceles triangle as shown in the figure (Figure 1). The +q1 = 4.75 μCand -q1 = 4.75 μC charges form a dipole.
(PartA)Find the magnitude and direction of the net force that the q2 = 8.00 μC charge exerts on the dipole.
|The force is upward.|
|The force is downward.|
(Part C)For an axis perpendicular to the line connecting the two charges of the dipole at its midpoint and perpendicular to the plane of the paper, find the magnitude and direction of the torque exerted on the dipole by the q2 = 8.00 μC charge.
|The torque is clockwise.|
|The torque is counter-clockwise.|
